App helps fans find stadium food

 

As stadia and arenas have improved their food concession offerings to include foods such as sushi, Mexican food, and BBQ, they have become increasingly difficult to navigate. And as more stadium goers than ever are gluten-free, kosher, vegan, or have other dietary restrictions, they need to find the foods that fit into their lifestyle.

Hungry Fan, a new app in the iTunes app store, enables sports fans and stadium goers to find, discover and explore menus and locations for all food sold at stadia and arenas in the USA.

By opening the Hungry Fan app on an iPhone, fans can see which foods are available at any stadium, where they can find each concession, filter by several criteria – from salads to fried to gluten-free – leave comments, and share with friends.

Pepsi will be the exclusive presenting sponsor of the app at launch.

“Prior to the launch of HungryFan, there was no single place to find this information easily,” says co-founder Daina Falk. “Partial information was buried on websites, or not optimised for mobile phones, which is the way that people needing it most (those at stadia) will look for it. Now, we put all of the stadium food information in one place, making it easier to find the food you want to eat, so you can get back to your seat.”

New stadia and arenas are being added daily, and menus will be frequently updated as changes are made to facilities.

Hungry Fan will be coming to other mobile operating systems soon.
